Well, school is going full swing. I love my classes, but my professors are bent on giving out busy work, which is awesome! Cause, you know, I have like tons of time to sit around conjugating 140 spanish verbs for homework! (For those of you who are a little slow to catch up... that's sarcasm!) Man, has this month been busy! We've got two new campuses that are being launched at the Journey, Catalyst conference is coming up, we're taking a family vacation to Disney World, and then there's the everyday business of school, being a husband and a father! Probably sounds kind of like your life huh? Busy!
That's Ok. Busy is good. To some extent. What I'm having to learn is this: Prioritize your schedule. If you don't, you're gonna make a lot of people mad. And you still may not please everyone, but there's only so much you can do! So prioritize! God is first, always, no exceptions. Then your family. This is the hard one. I know a lot of times I take for granted that my family understands my busy schedule and that they are Ok with me not spending as much time as I should with them. WRONG! This is the root of all of your other problems, if you don't get it right. Tiffany told me last night that she feels like sometimes we're just passing each other on the way to do something else. I've spent the whole morning thinking about this. And what I've come to see is, that's unacceptable. She and my son need to be the most important thing in my life, outside of my walk with God. Finally, the last thing on the list is, work and all other things that demand time.
So what's the solution? Well, I'm not Doctor Phil. So, I can't give anyone the clinically correct answer. The only thing that I can offer you is this. Take an inventory of your life. Look at where you spend your time. Are you spending time with God? Are you watching your family as they pass you by while you're on the way to another "something that I gotta do"? If so, you may want to spend some of that precious time you have to decide whether or not it's worth missing out on the important things!
